Our favorite comedian/car nut gets to drive seriously amazing cars. We’re jealous about that. The iterate that we’re immensely more jealous of his incredible personal car collection would about as useful as complaining about ice cream being cold.
In this episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, Philip Sarofim brings Jay a 1982 Lancia Stradale 037, or the street version of the car that won the manufacturers’ title following the 1983 WRC season. This 2,100-lb car is shod with an Abarth-tuned supercharged 2,0-litre 4-cylinder engine that produces 265-horsepower, mated to a ZF 5-speed manual. According to Phillip, with the available power packs, outputs rose to 325.
While all these numbers are fun, it’s the sound the longitudinally mounted straight 4-cylinder engine makes that gets us going. Jay’s praise for the way the Stradale is huge, and come only come from a person that owns so many cars… Did we mention we’re jealous?
